Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s official visit to Burma, earlier scheduled for Friday, July 31, has been postponed for two or three week at Burma’s request, said PM’s deputy secretary-general Panithan Watthanayakorn on Tuesday.
The request was made by the Burmese ambassador to Thailand, citing weather and internal politics as the reasons, he said.
Mr Panithan said the postponement has nothing to do with the fact that the Burma issue was raised for discussion at the recent Asean meetings in Phuket.
In another development, Mr Abhisit will on Wednesday hold a meeting with leaders of coaltion parties to discuss about the government’s six-month achievements and a report from the committee on national reconciliation, political reform and constitutional amendments.
